Mahindra hits back at Chinese editor’s tweet on Indian goods

Industrialist Anand Mahindra and editor-in-chief of Chinese media company, Global Times, were locked in a sharp exchange after the latter took a dig at India’s production capacity on Twitter.

“Well, even if Chinese people want to boycott Indian products, they can’t really find many Indian goods. Indian friends, you need to have some things that are more important than nationalism,” posted Hu Xijin of Global Times, a mouthpiece of the Communist Party. Xijin had shared an update about the government’s decision to ban 59 Chinese apps, including TikTok.

Mahindra wrote, “I suspect this comment might well be the most effective & motivating rallying cry that India Inc. has ever received. Thank you for the provocation. We will rise to the occasion.”
